Clive Daniel Home interior designers are known for being able to transform their clients’ spaces into the homes of their dreams—whether that means re-arranging the furniture and adding a few fresh pieces or planning a complete overhaul. This project tended toward the latter, as interior designers Ron Nowfel and Kay Craynon were tasked with transforming a tired Tuscan into a tasteful transitional. In the process, everything—including the ceiling details, flooring, paint, furniture, etc.—was replaced. 

The clients approached Ron and Kay shortly after purchasing their home. They loved the exterior and its incredible location on the water but were less thrilled with the Tuscan interiors. “They wanted a more clean, contemporary, uncluttered look,” Ron explains. 

He and Kay presented a selection of stunning design options featuring brighter hues, luxe materials, and sparkling lighting. “We picked up on all their ideas and incorporated them into a cohesive vision,” Kay says. 

The biggest changes can be seen in the living room. The designers replaced the original ornate fireplace with a sleek porcelain fireplace wall that extends to the ceiling, creating a dramatic focal point. They also added a cascading chandelier that reflects beautifully in the porcelain’s sheen. 

Next to the living room, Ron and Kay removed the bar and took out the Tuscan-style columns, opening up the space and creating a comfortable, casual dining space. 

The kitchen, too, underwent a complete overhaul. The ceiling beams were removed and everything else was replaced. As is true for most of the rooms in the home, it is now hardly recognizable from what it was before.

In the master bath, Ron and Kay created a spa-like retreat with a deep blue, charcoal, and cream color palette, and pebble flooring in the shower and around the bathtub and shower.

Custom details can truly be found in each corner of the house, from the wallpapers and draperies to the lighting and accessories. To see more images from this project, view it on our Portfolio.
